Child care subsidy management

The Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) sets the requirements for eligibility, authorization, provision, termination, and daily reimbursement rates for subsidized child care programs. EEC's child care financial assistance regulations and policies standardize the eligibility requirements and intake procedures for families, and help to ensure proper administration of subsidies and reimbursement payments to providers.
